Curly Coated Retrievers are well loved for their high intelligence, devotion to their families and their high energy level. But put these attributes together with a dog that is relatively late to mature and you can have a bad outcome, an intelligent dog that bores easily. Dogs that bore easily are more likely to getting into something they shouldn't, and are prone to making up their own games, like Chew the Pillow or Toss the China. In this article, we'll take a look at ways to keep even the most rambunctious Curly Coated Retriever entertained. [...]

The Difference Between English, Irish and Gordon Setters

Of the eighty recognized dog breeds in the world, the Setter has always been one of the most well liked. However, of all the Setters, it is the English Setter that has proven to be the most popular. Refined but never above being the class clown, a number of hunters and families have come to love the breed's many charms. Unsurprisingly, owners of an English Setter always have an amusing or heartwarming tale of stellar loyalty, strength and sensitivity. While this often inspires others to take an interest in the breed, many still wonder what the differences are between the English Setter and it cousins, the Gordon Setter and the Irish Setter. [...]

An intelligent breed like the English Setter will never tolerate isolation, inactivity or give up their need to explore. The owner who takes on the breed with the assumption that mental stimulation for dogs is an exaggeration is the owner who will sorely regret his or her underestimation. As with all highly intelligent breeds, the English Setter typically does not wait to be entertained. They are very much the kind that will take it upon themselves to explore, whether outdoors or indoors. The clever English Setter has been known to not only clear fences but open cupboards and refrigerator doors, dragging out whatever contents it finds. While this may be inconvenient, it is simply an indication that the dog needs more stimulating mental activity. [...]

Bloat In Greyhounds

Like all large dogs, greyhounds are also susceptible to bloat. This condition is fatal if not treated quickly enough. Bloating can occur without notice and might even be mistaken for indigestion.

Lifespan Issues For The Greyhound

There are still some lifespan issues that come with owning a greyhound, but for the most part they are a very healthy and long-lived breed. [...]

Diet and Exercise for the Good Health of Your Otterhounds

Keep Your PON Busy

A content and dutiful PON is a joy, but a PON that is not kept busy and has no sense of purpose can get in a lot of trouble. This dog was bred to be in charge of a flock and so it naturally wants to have a certain level of exercise and be considered an important part of the family unit. If you do not exercise the dog enough or give it something to do, like watching a child, it can easily become stubborn and willful and completely mischeivious. This dog is very intelligent and also seeks to be challenged in the types of tasks you set for it. [...]


Arthritis means joint inflammation, but the term is somewhat misleading because arthritis is much more than joint inflammation and cats do contract many forms of arthritis depending upon the breed and external factors. The particular forms of arthritis that cats suffer from are: Traumatic Arthritis (sprain) and Osteoarethritis, from there, there are several diseases that belong to one group or the other.Traumatic Arthritis as the name implies occurs when there is some sort of a trauma, (sprain) injury. In cats that could be the result of being hit by a moving vehicle, a cat fight, or bad fall.
